Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Hannah Metzker Kepple and live in Hopewell Township, Pa. I was born and grew up in Roaring Spring, Pa. Roaring Spring is part of Morrisons' Cove where my family ancestors settled. My family extends into many names, starting with Johannes Metzger, my immigrant ancestor. He had several daughters who married into the Brumbaugh Family. From there it has extended into many other names. If you think you may also go back to Johannes Metzger of Morrisons' Cove, I would be happy to share information. Now retired, my husband like to go out and walk thru cemeteries and work on my latest project.

RE: Catharine Rhodes Estright
Morning Hannah, not sure if I every responded to your request about Catherine. Here's what I have.

Lewis / Estrick / Eastright / Estright, born in Allegheny Township, Huntingdon County, (became Blair County in 1846) Pennsylvania, in 1809 to A-2, Patrick Willis (wife unknown) Estrick. Lewis appeared to have switch his last name around several times during his life. He married Catharine Rhodes around 1832. Catharine was born in 1812 Christian and Mary Catherine Estrite
(it should have been Estrick) Rhodes. It looks like Catharine brought a daughter to this marriage, Sarah Ox (Oaks). Sarah was mention in Catharine fatherís will, which was sent to me
by Christine Schultz Langdon. Lewis was listed in the 1860 census as Estrite, then showed up in the 1870 census, as Eastright, then Estright in 1880 census. Lewis had inherited the farm land in Liberty, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, from the death of his son, Christian, who was killed in the Civil War. Lewis was in the wood chopper business (which I think was selling fire wood). He sold the land he inherited to his daughter Caroline and her husband, Levi Reed. All of Lewisís children were born with the Estrick name, then change to Eastright or Estright name. Lewis and Catharine died in Liberty. Catharine died September 1, 1886, and Lewis died June 21, 1888. They are buried at Bunker Hill Cemetery, Saxton, Bedford County. Lewis and Catharine had nine
children, but one is unaccounted. Catherine brought one child to the marriage.

RE: Leroy Delbert Hoover
Your more than welcome, just noted his middle name on your text, so I changed my file version to reflect Delbert vs middle initial of just "D"

Laura Othella Flulk Hall, Mem: 59979455
Ms Hannah, you created the Subj. memorial as well as her husband, Harry Benjamin Hall, memorial #59979450. They are connected as Husband & Wife, but her Mem. only reflects one of their three children, Kathryn, while the other two, Mary B. Brown and John Marshal Hall are only reflected on his. You also created Mary's Mem., while KAT created John's. Would recommend that you finish Mary's by connecting her to her mother and contact KAT to see if they will do the same with John.
